Apparently I Am Not An Elite Rider*

20 Feb 2008 at 15:12

Wow! I got my own thread, I am waiting for the real abuse to begin, like 'but he's never ridden a trail centre", "He's slow", "he doesn't know all the words to Respectable by Mel & Kim*", you're probably bored of me now, so go and see Samuri he's more interesting.

In ride news, it was very cold today, I did my automatic 30miler, one day I'll bother giving a crap about riding a bike again.

* I am Super Elite

I decided it was too cold to ride today so I went for a walk instead. Everywhere was lovely and frozen :)

It warmed up for about 40mins when the sun came out, and I was climbing then BRRR cold again.

I did 30 miles, apparently that's not much.

Anyone could do that. It's only a couple of hours or so a day :)

Of course they can, are the clowns on STW assuming that I have no job?

If I had no job I reckon I'd ride loads more, I mean, you'd do the same wouldn't you....oh wait.. ;)

You've got a job? Tim said "He's a UN Peace Activist, and rides everyday as he is on strike due to the UK's foreign policy"

:)

Take or leave us, only please believe us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable

It's our occupation, we're a dancing nation
We keep the pressure on every night
Explanations are complications
We don't need to know the where or why

Taking chances, bold advances
Don't care if you think we're out of line
Conversation is interrogation
Get out of here, we just don't have the time

Take or leave us, only please believe us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable
Like us, hate us, but you'll never change us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable

Hesitation is just frustration
Give us the music and we're all right
On each occasion, for your information
We can look after ourselves all right

Take or leave us, only please believe us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable
Like us, hate us, but you'll never change us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable

Fascination is our sensation
We like to put ourselves on the line
Recreation is our destination
So don't wait up for us tonight

Take or leave us, only please believe us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable
Like us, hate us, but you'll never change us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable
Take or leave us, only please believe us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable
Like us, hate us, but you'll never change us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable

HTH.

So you can learn the lyrics and be a proper person :)

16:57 20 Feb

I can learn all the lyrics, unfortunately not being elite I forget them straight away.

Damn my life is ruined.

My hero worship is so like over now you've admitted to not knowing the words to Respectable..... ;0)

"I have the 7 inch here"

Calm down lad.

Heavy metal, rock and roll.
Music from the past
I'd rather jack
than fleetwood mac.

fuckwits. That just sums up the majority of STW's as far as I'm concerned. POB's, not cyclists.

oh, and intended to ride today, but got home, had a nap and just couldn't be bothered. Did some plastering though.

It was really really cold today, although it did warm up when it got dark, oddly.

Spring soon, I hope..
